Don't buy this, buy iSamurai instead.

Games I have beta tested: Minigore, Cogs, Guerilla Bob, Above and Beyond: Air Combat, Baseball Superstars 2010, 33rd Division, Cash Machine, 5 star General, Flick Football... Possibly some other ones I;ve forgotten

So is there any strategy to this at all or do you just try to cast the spells off as fast as possible? If there were some kind of spell/counterspell system to allow a game strategy to develop I'd be interested but if it's just a blast-fest then it's a bit lame, I think.

Must admit the vid didn't inspire me one bit - they seem almost ashamed to show their app in action, resorting instead to 99% movie footage and titles.

Here is a tip video from the developer.

You can see them playing it waving their arms around casting spells in this ABC News video from 45 seconds to 1min 5 secs.

There are some counter-spells (some 4 or 5) meant for protection. Nevertheless, I haven't really been able to use them quickly enough.

Try out Magic Wand for 99c. It's quite similiar to this.

Apparently you have to be a Slytherin to afford this... I'm just about ready to go to Gringott's and pull out some gallions, but ugh it's time for a new owl!

Hmm pro's and con's
